Hey guys,

Sorry we never got to blog from the road! Our internet access was super spotty and we spent most of our internet minutes putting pictures on flickr and gmailing and playing dolphin olympics.

Anyways, now I'll just do 15 tour blogs in one!

Day 1: DC
We pulled into DC and loaded our stuff into Comet Pizza. Comet Pizza really is a fun place to play and this was our third time. Kalani is the promoter there and he rules. We hung out with him for a bit and saw our friends from the Apes and Four Fins of the Rocket. Arrington played first. He did some insane throat-singing stuff. It was mesmerizing and incredible. I figure if I'm ever a king, I'll hire him to play in my palace all day long.
The Homosexuals also played. They're one of our favorite bands, and they played for like an hour! That was really awesome. We also did a little backstage percussion jam with them before they played.

Day 2: Columbus, OH
The Columbus show was crazy! We played in this little bar but everyone there was super into it! We also got to play with Talk Normal, who are really cool, so that was fun. We also went to this party across the street and pretty much just went upstairs and went on their computer. While we were gmailing I'm pretty sure these 2 dudes started having sex in the bathroom next door.

Day 3: Chicago, IL
This show was really small but Chicago is a really nice place. The next morning we went to an awesome music shop called Chicago Music Exchange. We picked up a small guitar part we needed.

Day 4: Lafayette, IN
Lafayette is a really nice town! It looks like a sort of railroad town from the 1800s. We were supposed to play with AIDS Wolf, but they had to cancel because their steering wheel broke. The show was still really fun though! The promoter here is really cool and he took a video at the show:

Day 5: Hot Springs, AR
This town rules! All these crazy bathhouses and museums and stuff. We were supposed to play with AIDS Wolf again here too, but they cancelled again so they could get to Texas in time. Anyways, we played this festival with Monotonix and Talk Normal. Talk Normal ruled and Monotonix are one of my favorite bands after this show!

Days 6, 7, 8, 9: Austin, TX
SXSW ruled! There's too much to remember so I'm not really going to write anything about this, but we played 9 really really fun shows!

Day 10: Houston, TX
Weird show! We played with AIDS Wolf at this huge place called Numbers. It holds I think 1000 people and the stage is like the size of Bowery Ballroom. I don't mean it's the size of the stage at Bowery - I mean it's the size of the whole Bowery Ballroom! Anyways, there were probably like 20 people there. Weird.
The promoter is named Omar and he's super cool! He's the editor of the independent newspaper there and soon he's opening a vegetarian restaurant! We stayed at his friend Tim's house who is really nice and has an ashtray in his bathroom next to his toothbrush.

Day 11: Scott, LA
This was one of the coolest places we visited on tour! The town reminded me of To Kill a Mockingbird! All the people were super nice and one woman there made an amazing salad! I also got to hold a gun for the first time ever which was really scary. This gun was like 5 feet long and probably weighed 40 pounds. It was a shotgun and the bullets were in the same room.
We visited this guy Paul's house across the street. He's about 80 years old and lives in an old bank. The vault is his kitchen. He has a crazy art collection and it's one of the most beautiful houses I've ever been in.

Day 12: Tuscaloosa, AL
College town with lots of frat houses. We ran into our friend Dave completely by coincidence! He was there on his tour's day off.

Day 13: Greensboro, NC
We played at the University of North Carolina with HEALTH, one of our favorite bands! They're super nice and it was really fun playing with them. This guy gave me his shirt. It says COLLEGE on the front and has no sleeves.

Day 14: Richmond, VA
We love playing at the Triple! The promoter is really nice here and has an awesome website: http://richmondrampage.com/!
Before the show we went to a DD/MM/YYYY show. They're one of my new favorite bands and all such nice dudes!!

Day 15: Philadelphia, PA
This was a cool party at the Danger Danger Gallery. Shellshag and Stupid Party also played.
As we were leaving, we found out the car was running low on Coolant so we went to the best auto shop ever! Jeff Sheehan is the guy and he is incredible! If you ever have car trouble in Phili, go there!

but nonetheless it ruled. I almost cried at the end. here is biggie demolishing when he was 17

Home/Providence, RI

The drive to providence from boston was really short. Once we got there we hung out with Josh Brown's friend Brian. He lives in this awesome silo-tower thing right next to a giant flea market. We went out quickly to grab some breakfast of chinese food, then came back. He has sweet instruments in his house so we also jammed a lot. Julian and I played this game that was like Risk but only with American wars. You are always america.

We got to RISD and it was freeeezing out. We loaded all of our stuff in and met Jackie, who booked the show. We had a nice quick and easy soundcheck and hung out a little bit with Future Islands & The Long Shadows. We also saw our friend who graduated last year, so that was also cool.

The show was great. There were a fuckload of people there and everybody seemed into it. Later we also ran outside to go to this really tiny diner that's like a staple of providence called the Haven Brothers Diner. It's really fucking small and fantastic. Kind of expensive but worth it. Their coffee is also incredible.

I actually took that photo last time we were there.

a happy customer

After the show we slept at Jackie's friend Liz's house which was awesome. We talked for a long time about my shitty math teacher, graphic designers, computers, and life in general. it was fun.

Today we woke up late because it was snowin' like a motha and then ate at this cool diner called Louis'. They had the best hashbrowns i've ever eaten. After a long sleepy drive we are finally back in new york and i'm going to sleep.

Boston/Jamaica Plain

We just woke up in Jamaica Plain, MA after a crazy crazy house show.

After a near 5 hour traffic-filled drive. We pulled up to the house and played. Keep in mind it's also like 5˚ out. Our friends from Allston Paddy & Steve came out so it was really really cool to see them. The house we played at actually looked exactly like the inside of Paddy's place, which was weird, but cool. We met this awesome dude with an insane boston accent, who happened to look like this dude we know. This awesome drunk comedian gave us a little of her routine which was hilarious. We also hung out a little bit with this dude we used to know Shane, who used to be in this band called TV Eye.

Anyway so we played a craazyyy show. There weren't too many people in the basement when we first started to play but as time passed lots more people showed up. But then, once we played war pigs, everyone went totally apeshit. I have never been knocked around at a show like that before. It was insane. After War pigs everybody went CRAZY for every song, was ridiculous. We even did an unplanned encore which is something we've never really done before.

We slept at the promoter Daniell's house and watched a bit of American Pyscho. Actually as i'm typing we're finishing it.

All in all, 'twas a great day. Now we leave for providence, RI

the new split single by Fiasco & Banzai (who share a common member of Jonathan). Banzai has a blog listed in our friend's section.

We're both doing covers of one of the greatest bands ever, Snuffy (formally known as Snuffleupagus). You must see them live. You will die of amazement.

They also have an album coming out during the summer so be on watch!!

that is about it.

3 Day Mini-Tour Recap

Day 1. We drive down to baltimore no problem (except for the peeing emergencies), but got to the old talking head club by accident. We learn where the new one is and go to that one, then decide to look around. The best thing we found was a store i think called "Totally Kids" but for some reason on the awning it said "Kids Totally Kids Totally Kids" so we're going to name a song "Kid Totally Kids Totally Kids (3 Kids, 2 Totally's)

The show itself was really fun. we played with eatadick.com and Adventure. Later that night some asshole let their dog shit near the door of the club, so mad people trotted in dog shit. we even got it on the drum rug and had to cut a hole through it. that sucked. But everything else was good.

After another pee emergency we went to Chevy Chase, MD to stay with Jonathan's aunt & uncle. We got up fairly late and went to dc for the day.

Day 2. DC was cool. we got there at like 3 or 4 so it was still somewhat light out. We went to the National Portrait Gallery, looked at some nice presidential portraits then got food. We all ate at this sandwich place and got sandwiches (except for jonathan). The sandwich was good, but the service of the place wasn't very good, plus there were no bathrooms. Then we decided to go to the mall (washington monument, WWII memorial, lincoln memorial) only because it was at night and we knew that everything would be lit up very nicely, and we were not disappointed. Then we actually took the exact same route back to the train from the last time we were in DC.

We came back just in time to go to Comet Pizza. We all had some awesome pizza. For Christmas, my aunt had some extra nerf guns lying around the house for her son to play with, but then decided to give the guns to me, so we had this sweet nerf set. It was like nerf pistols. Only one "bullet" could go in.

it didn't look anything like that. Anyway we had a nerf war in the parking lot. That ruled. We played with Mr. Tiggles & the Beefe Bong Band. They were cool.

After the comet show ended, we were invited to play a house party that was like a 5 minute car ride away from comet pizza, so we did. It was awesome. A drunk frat dude saw us loading our stuff into the house and started talking to us. He was really funny and nice. He explained that he never seen the kind of music we played and he liked it, which was nice to hear. We also hung out with the sweet band Four Fins of the Rocket
Because of Comet Pizza we missed them, but they are the nicest dudes ever. We went back to ol' Chevy Chase to sleep and then to get down to Richmond Virginia.

Day 3: After a fairly short drive to Richmond, we got there around 4 or 5. Julian had a drumstick crisis so he bought some drumsticks at the local sam ash, which was fucking enormous. It was like twice as big as any music store in NY, plus it was right next to a guitar center. We loaded our gear in at The Tripple which is a pool hall/bar/venue. Another thing we totally forgot about is the fact that in other places in the US you can smoke in restaurants & bars, so that was really weird.

check out the triple's sandwich menu.

The Lovely Karen went to college in Richmond so she showed us this really fucking amazing diner called 821. The great thing about it is that it specializes in vegan/vegetarian food, but also everything else. So for example in the burger section you can get like a hamburger, cheeseburger, swiss & mushroom burger, veggie burger, and vegan burger. It's fucking brilliant. Their coffee is also fantastic. They also have this insane burger that is sandwiched between two grilled cheese sandwiches. what the fuck? if i didn't eat meat and i was really insanely hungry i think i'd have that.

We then walked around in a neighborhood of richmond that was really empty and the only thing open were bars and a 7-11. There was also a movie theater where movies cost like $2.50. That's insane. That's lower than renting a movie. As soon as we got back to the hotel room, we sort of slept. I applied to NYU, then we had another nerf battle in the parking lot.

Anyway the show later that night was great. It so far had the best turnout, and the coolest guy ever played with us. He goes under the name Gull. He plays guitar with the left hand and drums with the right hand, at the same time. It's so ill. Everyone at the bar and pool section all ran up to see him as soon as he started to play. I have never seen anything like that before. He is also the guitarist in this sweet band Ultra Dolphins .


(he seems to be playing at a water park)

After the show we went back to the hotel (a comfort inn that was right next to the venue), watched that movie role models, then went to bed.

The ride back was really long and tiresome. I don't remember most of it, because i mostly just slept. I think i ate a veggie burger at burger king. I remember waking up in staten island and thinking we were still stuck in traffic in NJ. All in all, it was a very fun mini-tour.
